This beautifully-presented duckling crochet kit contains everything you need to make one mallard duckling:
- 20-page fully-illustrated pattern printed on recycled paper
- organically-farmed British merino wool
- bamboo-cotton blend yarn for eyes, beak and feet
- 100% natural sheep’s wool for stuffing
- blunt-tipped yarn needle
- gift tag up-cycled from cereal packets, greetings cards, etc
Everything is smartly presented in a reusable box, making it a great gift for anyone crafty.
The gorgeous yarn included in the kit is wonderfully soft and a delight to crochet with, resulting in a perfectly fluffy duckling.
The pattern is worked with a 3.5mm (US size E-4) crochet hook (or the size needed to make a compact crochet fabric with the given yarn). You can choose to include a lovely bamboo crochet hook in the kit if you don’t have one or are giving the kit as a gift.
The finished duckling is approximately 10cm (4inches) long.
The kit contents and packaging aims to be as eco-friendly as I can possibly make it:
- box – 70% recycled, reusable and recyclable.
- ball bands, box labels – 100% recycled paper, recyclable.
- pattern – 100% recycled paper, recyclable.
- tissue – 100% recycled, recyclable.
- business cards, tags, etc – handmade from greeting cards, cereal packets, etc, recyclable.
The wool stuffing is a natural product and comes in a variety of sheepy colours. It is scoured, clean and carded, but may include the odd bit of straw or leaf.
